Well, hello! Have you wondered how some people eat and how they live their day? I thought I would do something a little different and bring you along to show you what I eat in a day while on Weight Watchers. To start out, I’ve been getting into a really good habit of drinking all my daily water. The big motivator for me is when Weight Watchers changed their program and made it so now a person can ADD to their daily points, one way of doing that is to drink ALL of your water, 8 cups=1 point earned.
Before I go to bed, I fill my water bottle so it’s ready when I wake up. I stopped drinking coffee immediately after getting out of bed because I find it already starts my day off on the wrong foot. Sometimes I like to diffuse it with lemon or strawberries but today I am keeping it just water.
Time to start the day! I drink this ENTIRE bottle of water before I anything else. I find that I am awake a lot faster this way. I do make sure to drink all of the water by the time I am done getting ready for work, that way I have my first three cups done and out of the way!
Finished my water and I’m ready for breakfast and coffee. I have my oatmeal with berries and 2 tsp of brown sugar. All of this comes to only 5 points.
Around this time I’m starting to feel hungry but decided to push myself to see if I can wait until 8:30.
While I am waiting to have my snack, I start sipping on more water.
I am definitely feeling hungry! These scones are fresh out of oven and so tempting! The smell is enough to tempt anyone. Typically I would set one aside but I stayed strong.
Instead I finished wrapping the scones and had a hard boiled egg seasoned with everything spice.
I’m feeling the temptation again. Normally I’d take one or two without even batting an eyelash and justifying that only a couple wouldn’t hurt. But I’m fighting the urge! I’m pushing myself to 10:00 and see how I feel. I am reminding myself of the verse “I am the bread of life.” Reminding myself of Bible verses is a good way to keep me focused.
No chips for me! That’s a victory! Instead I finished my 24 ounces of water and now I’m ready for my americano. Three shots of espresso, a dab of sugar free Irish Cream, and 2 Tbsp of half and half. This drink comes to 2 points because of the half and half.
Feeling hungry again but it’s still too soon to pull out the lunch I brought, so another hard boiled egg with everything seasoning!
Busy afternoon! Finally get to eat! This is something I made the night before. It’s just chicken and a bunch of veggies. I don’t lose any points from this meal but I actually earn at least 2 points for the two cups of veggies.
Done with work and having one more hard boiled egg before my walk. These are perfect for a quick pick-me-up.
Ready for my afternoon water! I am killing it today!
Getting started on dinner and decided to make this tonight. It’s in the WW Personal Points Cookbook and it’s called “Spiced Lentils, Rice and Pasta with Onions” it’s made from a leftover from a couple days ago. The method was interesting, I had do roast pasta on the skillet for a minute or two and then add the rice. It worked and it was really good.
This little bar is a perfect little dessert or a snack, only two points. Dinner is almost done but I’m really hungry so this will tide me over until then.
The finished product. I think it looks a lot like the photo in the book. I had only one serving, which was one cup and that was 4 points.
Have you had these? These are surprisingly really good. After dinner, I still had quite a bit of points left so I had some popcorn, 3 cups = 3 points. Not bad!
At this time I still had a bunch of points leftover so I had three more, no shame, and that was 6 points.
I don’t do this every night, but tonight I felt like making some tea as I wind down for bed.
That’s it! I get 21 points for the day and ended up using 22 with 2 left over with the two cups of veggies and 8 cups of water. It was helpful to document my day and see for myself the times when I am feeling temptation. I hope that was encouraging for you too. It’s not easy when your temptation is right in front of you! But today was good. I finished strong. Until next time guys!
